Over 7,000 tonnes of grit are stored at the depot which is the largest in the county.
JP Concrete worked closely with the South West’s main highways, engineering and construction specialist, Cormac to provide a complete one-stop precast service solution.
Work included management of the existing 108m(failing) concrete perimeter and 39m of dividing T-walls that had to be removed and crushed.
Damaged over the years by vehicle impact that had caused cracks to appear, the very aggressive salt and brine environment had resulted in severe corrosion and structural uncertainty.
JP Concrete supplied and installed bolt-down precast retaining wall units as well as sealing the floor precast unit joints and vertical joints between units.
David Vincent, Area Highway Manager for Cormac Solutions, said: “We needed a company who could provide a complete solution to speedily supply, transport and install new concrete panels, as well as remove and dispose of the old material.
“We made JP Concrete aware of the critical timeframe for a major delivery of salt, and true to their word, they pulled everything out of the bag.
“This has been an outstanding collaborative effort. We had to clear space for the work by reducing salt levels, leaving only a tight window of less than two weeks for JP Concrete to get in and carry out their work.
“We worked closely together on having the old material removed, crushed and recycled, which completed an excellent job all round”.
